McLuhan Time Travel

In this rewound clip from 1960, Marshall McLuhan asks questions about new media (television) that can easily be applied to the ever-morphing Internetworks.

When any new form comes into the foreground of things, we naturally look at it through the old stereos…we’re trying to fit the old things into the new form instead of asking what the new form is going to do to all the assumptions we had before.
